GoogleTranslate offers frontend translation. Useful, yes. But often slow, and it is not always perfect. Our powerful Joomla extension offers backend translations for all your products and categories. This allows you to correct translations before publishing. And it makes your site fly.

I can’t thank you enough for this plugin. We’ve been trying it and loving it.
The Google Translation API v2 is only made available by Google as a paid service. While Googles pricing is ok, we understand objections against it. Please note that we do not offer the Google Translation itself, neither can we determine the terms under which it is offered.
Both Google and Microsoft offer computer-based translation APIs. To make the right choice, you need to weigh in a couple of factors. GoogleTranslate charges for every translation you make, while the Microsoft Translation API (formerly called BingTranslate) is free up to a certain limit. Both offer a finejob when translating content, but some users claim that the Google translation is slightly better than the one of Microsoft. To test this, it is best to try out their free web-based version with your own text to compare the differences. Some useful links:
If you purchase the GoogleTranslate extension from our site, you will get a 50% discount on the BingTranslate extension and vice versa. This allows you to easily cross-over when needed.
Once the Editor Plugin is enabled, you will find a button that is added to the WYSIWYG area. When editing an article, the language of that article can be configured as an article setting. The button will pick up on that language setting and with one click, it will replace the WYSIWYG text with the translated equivalent.
Once the System Plugin is enabled, you will find a small icon next to each input field, that allows translating the value of that input field as well.
For instructions on using GoogleTranslate under JoomFish, see the installation guide (which explains the procedure for BingTranslate, but this procedure also works for GoogleTranslate).
